Hour 1:

Tuesday. A massive storm has caused catastrophic damage and left hundreds of thousands of people without power in Ottawa.

11:28 - "A state of emergency at the municipal level is completely different and much less powerful than provincial and federal."

Mayor Jim Watson joins Rob with an update on the City's clean-up efforts after the storm and to explain why Ottawa has not called a state of emergency like some other municipalities in Eastern Ontario.

11:28 -  "They said roughly $100,000 per kilometre for above ground hydro lines and $1 million per kilometre to bury the lines. So it's about a 10-to-one ratio."

Professor Ian Lee is here with his take on Ottawa's response to the weekend's storm damage.
